Six Sigma Black Belt in HR (BBHR)™
The Six Sigma Black Belt in HR Certification, developed exclusively for the Management and Strategy Institute, is designed to give the student a solid understanding of Six Sigma principles and teach you how to effectively lead a Six Sigma team. Six Sigma focuses on measuring and quantifying the impact of an improvement project. It requires buy-in across the business for the project to make changes based upon those measurements irrespective of personal views.
Guesswork and assumptions have no place, it is a precise process. This program covers the operational roles and integration requirements that Human Resources (HR) or Human Resource Managers (HRM) provide, both within an organization to support Six Sigma projects and initiatives and within HR to support its own Six Sigma projects and improvements.
We also offer our Six Sigma Black Belt Professional (SSBBP)® course for those who do not want their certification to have an HR concentration.

Frequently asked questions:
Are There Prerequisites?
No, If you are an experienced Six Sigma practitioner you may sign up for the Black Belt Certification Test and skip directly to the test. If you are new to Six Sigma, you can study the Training Material before taking the test. The Black Belt training course includes all of the course work for the Green Belt and Yellow Belt and you will learn that material first, before moving on to the Black Belt material.
Is the Black Belt Certification Test Difficult?
To function at a high level within Six Sigma it is important for Black Belts to have a solid understanding of the related principles. This test is timed, so you will not be able to look up answers to questions while taking the test. If you are an experienced Six Sigma practitioner you should be able to pass the test without the training material. If you are new to Six Sigma, or feel you could use some additional training, we recommend reviewing the Training Material before taking the test.
